Hey Katie,

On being at home and tempted by food, I recommend a replacement. Learn something new like drawing, or even an inexpensive instrument like the recorder. I draw or practice the piano specifically to distract myself from boredom eating. Other distractions like cleaning and organizing can work, but I think it's better to find an element of fun. Sometimes we have to look beyond ordinary solutions.

Haiku? Yo Yo? Needlepoint? Welding?

Thanks Mike, it's def one of my favourites I am loving it.

I have taken a look at Thermogenic and will do that next but need a substitue for chin ups and also wanted to check I could substitute TB ext for burpees, as they just seem to niggle my back and set of sciatica, but if there is anything else you can recommend I will give it a try.

I will also post over on training section.

Cheers for now Katie

Full of fab ideas and wisdom as usual Catherine! Thanks for this.

I have actually bought myself a book called Moody to Mellow - it deals with stress and helps you get your life organised so should keep me busy!!

Cheers Katei

Smile today update

Hi Guys

No training today, recovery day, but did a fast until 7.30pm food for tonights:

spinach, carrots, lettuce, cabbage, tomato, cottage cheese, 2 ham slices

1 shortbread biscuit
1 lemon mouse yoghurt thingy!

the last 2 items were not planned but were in sight and tickled my taste buds....

mental note to hide things away!

tomorrow I have workout C of metabolic finishers and will be eating well.

Have had a bit of a rethink about my goal of 10lb weight loss and I think I should not actually put a number on my goal loss. I have made this mistake before and get hung up on numbers, to be honest my clothes are my best guide and I know when I feel good in them so that's my new goal.

Feel good in my clothes!

Hope everyone going OK

Cheers for now Katie

Hi Katie,

On the power breakfast subject, I've updated my usual menu a bit. Now I saute' my vegetables in a cast iron skillet with a bit of organic coconut oil or Kerrygold butter. I'm loving chard, mushrooms, onion, home grown tomatoes and peppers these days. I season with organic turmeric, ginger, curry powder, and iodized sea salt (from Italy- not Morton's which has fillers that keep it from clumping) . I suggest you make extra to serve your loved ones and to eat with lunch.

No matter what eating plan you follow, you simply can't go wrong with fresh vegetables at every meal. Once we get to a "normal" BMI there isn't that much wiggle room in the diet anymore so nutrient density is crucial. I believe that most of the hunger I feel is a genuine request from my body for nutrition. As long as I don't scramble those signals with hyper-palatable foods I can eat to fullness/satiety and still release fat at a moderate calorie deficit.

It really does work!
